BoilerPress is the shared WordPress environment available to Purdue users. A WordPress blog with almost any URL or name can be hosted here, with each blog having its own database, uploads area, configuration, and optionally themes and plugins.
For basic use, no server accounts are needed. Even limited theme development based on pre-existing themes can be done without a UNIX account. If SFTP access is required an account must be created on the server. To request an account you will need to fill out the account form.
